The rising Los Angeles-based duo, Casino Gold, has released the excellent remix pack for their feel-good house anthem, “All I Need,” via Perfect Driver Music. Kicking off the package, our own Troy Kurtz gives us a striking deep house floor filler led by a huge, driving bassline paired with percussive/vocal accents. Ruff Hauser follows suit with a stand-out bass-heavy remix that incorporates an unexpected half-time breakdown, while Evil Twin offers up a piano-laden house groover. The Perfect Driver label head, Matthew Anthony, then closes out the pack in proper form with a more experimental interpretation that features unique synth work over  up-tempo tribal rhythms. With these brilliant renditions, Casino Gold successfully revitalizes “All I Need,” just in time for Miami. Purchase the remix pack on Beatport.

Following up on their second petFood release that dropped yesterday, Miami’s up and coming trio of cosmic house music specialists, Dude Skywalker, has put together a fantastic guest mix to keep you dancing through the week and beyond. In their one hour slot, they artistically weave through some of the hottest tracks of the moment, while incorporating some deep cuts and even a remix of Casino Gold‘s “All I Need” from our own Troy Kurtz. Dude Skywalker has more impressive club-ready music on the way, so get familiar and enjoy the mix.

GDD-SankeysNYC

This Friday, December 6th, your favorite GDD™ DJs will be invading “the cellar” of Sankeys – one of the world’s biggest names in clubbing – spankin’ new New York City home. Bones, Burn Unit, and Troy Kurtz, joined by a few of our New York friends and family, who also happened to join us when we curated the Wide Awake Art Car for Electric Daisy Carnival NYC earlier this year, Kromo & Vish, as well as Sean Glass.

Having recently had the chance to do a walk-through of the venue during daylight hours, let me just say that I can’t wait to see this place with the lights down low, packed with beautiful, drunk, sweaty people and filled with loud, pumping, sexy music.

We couldn’t feel more privileged to be aligning with our friends behind NYC’s notorious Party For No Reason events and such a storied franchise in Sankeys, world-reknown for being purveyors of cutting-edge music at their Manchester, UK location (voted in recent years as the #1 club in the world by DJ Mag) and their Ibiza outpost (which hosted the Dirtybird weekly residency this summer, among other things).

Oh, and the best part? Simply RSVP via email to

for FREE admission!

We’ll see you underground.

Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the third installment of my Haute & Bothered mixtape series has arrived after a year’s hiatus. The aesthetic draws heavily from certain tracks that disavow basic genre umbrellas, and after crawling out of the deep house black hole that I found myself in the last year, it seemed right to enter the autumnal equinox with a grip of new tracks that subscribe to this mantra from the likes of Curses, Canblaster, SCNTST, as well as an original track from myself mixed into the fray.

Tomorrow night we have the New York natives Wolf + Lamb kicking off our new DTLA warehouse happening called BASS HAÜS, pouring their heart and soul into a 4 hour extended vinyl set. This one is set to be something special, and we wanted to catch up with the guys for quick 5 questions just off the top…

GDD: Favorite city in the world to play?
W+L: These vagabond shoes, They are longing to stray, Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York

GDD: Biggest inspiration growing up?
W+L:  getting the hell out of the hasidic community and into the big bad world of sex, drugs and dance music

GDD: Longest set ever played and where was it?
W+L: 10 hours at Burning Man, warped final scratch records, an inch of dust and a lot of memories…

GDD: How did the union/collaborative performances with Soul Clap come to be?
W+L: They sent us some edits that they done, which at the time was a style we knew really little about, then we met on Skype interestingly enough and invited them down to the marcy, our home in new york.. took about an hour before we were in deep.

GDD:  With its growing exposure do you see deep house and garage being the next big thing in the US?
W+L: Probably not, it’s always a foundation but never seems to have enough teeth to make it to the big-time. then again, we never woulda thought Skrillex would be pop…

BASS HAÜS
We have teamed up with Faux Entertainment RollingTUFF, and Music Is 4 Lovers to bring you a taste of the underground… We invite all of you to come to the debut event, held in downtown Los Angeles on July 17th @ the Think Tank Gallery. Fusing music with the local art culture, Bass Haüs reincarnates the beloved underground party within the art filled walls of the venue. This great lineup paired with the cool warehouse-esque vibe of Bass Haus will put all attendees in high spirits. So come get nostalgic, celebrate our culture, and dance the night away to the tunes of Wolf + Lamb, Jon Dadon, and Bones & Troy Kurtz!

TUNAGE:

From LA to Scottsdale to Austin to Dallas to New Orleans to Miami, our GDD resident hooligans Troy Kurtz, BONES, and Burn Unit have taken the experience of the GDDRV journey and produced 3 essential sets wrapped into an hour of the ultimate vibe. It was recorded and created literally on the roadtrip while burning highways across the country. This was originally proposed for our guest mix on Evolution Radio (airing this Saturday 3/23), but we have decided to unleash it early for you dirty dancers, so you can catch up on all the action and step into the drivers seat of the GDDRV…
